title The computation of description grammars: two case studies
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 115-124
summary We revisit two case studies that adopt a shape grammar to relate different architectural styles. Both adopt a description scheme, augmenting the shape grammar, as the main vehicle for relating dif- ferent styles, however, they both present the description rules only conceptually. Following a description grammar interpreter and its no- tation for descriptions and description rules, we explore a valid expli- cation of both description schemes. This exploration serves three pur- poses: firstly, as a demonstration of the notation adopted; secondly, as an evaluation of the applicability of the description grammar inter- preter and its notation to these case studies; and, thirdly, as a demon- stration of the explication of description grammars from concept to computation.
